Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep




Rick Deckard is a bounty hunter assigned to "retire" rogue androids masquerading as humans, but discovers there may be nothing that really separates the android from the human, for the one distinction, empathy, is revealed to be its own virtual reality in a post-acopolyptic world where trying to feel for any living thing becomes a highly prized commodity.

I admit to have never read the book 'Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep' but was interested to know the origins of the story for the film 'Blade Runner'.

A very good easy listening unabridged version punctuated by reminders of which chapter you are listening to.

Absolutely solid story which raised some interesting human and artificial life conflicts that are in all possibility just a few decades away from us in our reality.

Excellent service from Internet Archive, going to have to find and listen to some other classics on here.

Thank you very much

The files are very good! The book is very well read.

However, there is a small problem with the mp3 files. They seem to report a wrong duration. This problem manifests both in the mp3 player on the site and on my local machine (ubuntu, with mplayer and totem)

the program mp3val is both able to detect and correct the problem.
